DescriptionDumbo (RKO, 1941). Fine+ on Linen. One Sheet (27" X 41") Style B.
Ben Sharpsteen directed this poignant tale of a lonely little elephant who learns to use his unique skills and fly with the aid of Timothy Mouse and a group of wise-cracking crows. The original release of this Disney classic grossed more revenue than Pinocchio and Fantasia combined. The film proved so popular that Time magazine planned to feature Dumbo on the December, 1941 cover until the unfortunately events of Pearl Harbor bumped the baby elephant. This incredibly rare style B one sheet has received touchup to slight edge and fold wear, mild fold separations, a few creases, and pinholes. There were thin scratches to the upper right of the center crossfold, moderate tears in the borders, as well as a vertical tear beneath the technicolor logo. The poster also had couple of small chips near the borders and folds.
Estimate: $5,000 - $10,000.
